Attempt all parts of either Q. No. 2 or Q. No. 2A


(a) What corrective action to be taken by the companies to improve Economic Value Added?
(3 marks)
1. First, operating performance with respect to operating profit margins or asset turnover
ratios could be improved to generate more revenue without using more capital.

2. Second, the capital invested in the business might be reduced by selling under-utilized
assets; this strategy will simultaneously improve operating performance through a higher
asset turnover ratio, as well as a reduced capital charge against those earnings because of
a reduced debt or equity capital investment.
3. Third, redeploy the capital invested to projects and activities that have higher operating
performance than the current projects or investments are exhibiting.

4. And fourth, if the business is not highly leveraged, change the capital structure by
substituting lower cost debt for higher cost equity. Although this last strategy will decrease
net income because of the higher interest cost, it will improve the EVA of the business
because the total cost of debt and equity is reduced, and EVA measures the value created
after all costs of capital (debt and equity) have been taken into account.

(b) Mention the costs that are not included in the cost of internally generated intangible
assets. (3 marks)

Total = 480+720 = 1200

2) Call in Advance to be adjusted against allotment money

(80 * 5) + [(500-320) *4 ] = 1120

3) Call in Arrears =
Shares applied for by holder of 16 lakhs shares = 16/320 * 500 = 25 lakhs
Amount received on application = 25 * 4= 100 lakhs
Amount adjustment on application = 16*4 = 64 lakhs
Excess amount towards allotment = 100-64=36 Lakhs
Amount not received on allotment = (16 * 5) – 36 = 44 Lakhs

4) Call in advance to adjusted against call money

Amount received on 200 lakhs shares = 200 * 4 = 800
Amount adjusted on application (80 alloted) = 80 * 4 = 320
Excess = 800 -320 = 480
Adjusted against allotment money = (80 * 5 = 400
Excess towards call money = 480 – 400 = 80

5) Amount transferred from Share Forfeiture to Capital Reserve related to 10 Lakh

Shares applied for by holder of 10 lakhs shares = 10/320 * 500 = 15.625 Lakhs
Amount received on application = 15.625 * 4 = 62.5 Lakhs
Amount transferred = amount received – loss adjusted on reissue
= 62.5 – 10

(i) What are the duties of auditor if he notices fraud during the course of audit?
If an auditor of a company, in the course of the performance of his duties as auditor, has
reason to believe that an offence involving fraud is being or has been committed against the
company by officers or employees of the company, which involves or is expected to involve
individually an amount of Rs. 1 Crore or above, he shall immediately report the matter to the
Central Government within such time and in such manner prescribed in Rule 13.

Auditor shall forward his report to the Board or the Audit Committee, as the case may be,
immediately after he comes to knowledge of the fraud but not later than 2 days, seeking their
reply or observations within forty-five days;

On receipt of such reply or observations the auditor shall forward his report and the reply or
observations of the Board or the Audit Committee along with his comments (on such reply or
observations of the Board or the Audit Committee) to the Central Government within 15 days
of receipt of such reply or observations;

In case the auditor fails to get any reply or observations from the Board or the Audit
Committee within the stipulated period of forty-five days, he shall forward his report to the
Central Government alongwith a note containing the details of his report that was earlier
forwarded to the Board or the Audit Committee for which he failed to receive any reply or
observations within the stipulated time.

Further, the report shall be sent to the Secretary, Ministry of Corporate Affairs in a sealed

No duty to which an auditor of a company may be subject to shall be regarded as having been

important to note that the provision of this rule shall also apply, mutatis mutandis, to a cost
auditor and a secretarial auditor during the performance of his duties under section 148 and

o Parties involved

The following details of each of the fraud reporting to the Audit Committee or the Board shall
be disclosed in the Board’s Report:
o Nature of Fraud with description
o Approximate Amount involved
o Parties involved, remedial action not taken
o Remedial actions taken

(ii) Explain commonly used methods to be used by auditor in selection of audit sample.
The auditor should select sample items in such a way that the sample can be expected to be
representative of the population. This requires that all items in the population have an
opportunity of being selected.

While there are a number of selection methods, three methods commonly used are:
Random selection, which ensures that all items in the population have an equal chance of
selection, for example, by use of random number tables.

Systematic selection, which involves selecting items using a constant interval between
selections, the first interval having a random start. The interval might be based on a certain
number of items (for example, every 20th voucher number) or on monetary totals (for example,
every ` 1,000 increase in the cumulative value of the population). When using systematic
selection, the auditor would need to determine that the population is not structured in such a
manner that the sampling interval corresponds with a particular pattern in the population.

For example, if in a population of branch sales, a particular branch’s sales occur only as every
100th item and the sampling interval selected is 50, the result would be that the auditor
would have selected all, or none, of the sales of that particular branch.

Haphazard selection, which may be an acceptable alternative to random selection, provided

the auditor attempts to draw a representative sample from the entire population with no
intention to either include or exclude specific units. When the auditor uses this method, care
needs to be taken to guard against making a selection that is biased, for example, towards
items which are easily located, as they may not be representative.

money outflow i.e. a large amount of money is spent on manufacturing process e.g. in buying
machinery, raw material, consumables, paying salary to workers etc. It is very important to
review the manufacturing operations in timely manner so that the identified in-efficiency may
be eliminated controlled on immediate basis.
